Hi there!

I'm Tameka Vasquez, a  marketing strategist and advisor, and believer of innovation in business and lifestyle.

disrupt.

influence.

win.


You're likely wondering what is printed on my t-shirt in the photo above. It says, "I've been to the future. We won."

For the past 8 years, I've helped technology organizations win by:

  • staking their claim in the marketplace  [disrupt]
  • telling their stories in as many facets as possible  [influence]
  • generating growth and long-standing influence  [win]

I've worked within startups, mid-sized firms and global enterprises in business intelligence, advertising, financial services, information and publishing industries, both as an employee and as an external consultant. 

My core expertise lies in marketing strategy, marketing process and automation, lead generation, sales and partner enablement, content marketing and brand identity. I have a proven ability to foster cross-functional collaboration and a track record of pioneering new roles and operating remotely within international teams. 

As a marketer, I am driven by the endless possibilities caused by the modern speed of change. I am comfortable with discomfort. I am certain uncertainty spawns brilliance. The spirit of innovation, in multiple forms, has determined my trajectory thus far. And this is just the beginning.  

my work,

schoolin'

& service.
